As a teenager and aspiring photographer, Bruce McAllister documented life in Hāna, Hawai‘i’s Paradise in the 1950s, shooting Kodachrome photographs with his reliable Leica. In this book, he has added historical photographs from local and multiple sources to compile this book. There are rare photographs of Paul Fagan, who turned Hāna from a failing sugar mill into an exotic tourist destination. There are also chapters on the infamous but colorful Hāna Highway, Hāna’s beaches, the original Hotel Hana Maui, the famous Hasegawa General Store, Kaupo, Haleakalā National Park, Hāna’s celebrities, and Charles Lindbergh’s last years in Kīpahulu.


Author Bruce McAllister has authored 11 aviation history books after a forty-year career as a freelance magazine photographer. Before he began his photography career, he was a photo trainee at LOOK Magazine in New York City, copy boy at the San Francisco Chronicle, and staff photographer for the Harvard Crimson. He spent his teenage summers in Hāna photographing street life when he wasn't bodysurfing.
